Indie Design GAL: Sweaters Part 2

This is part of my on-going Indie Designer Gift-A-Long 2016 series, where from November 23rd – December 31st I highlight some patterns from my fellow designers also participating in the event! Each post will highlight at minimum 5 different designers and their patterns.

Don’t forget to join in the fun, we’re all over here chatting up a storm (when our fingers aren’t flying that is).

Burton Vestigan by Ela Torrente

From the pattern description
The vestigan features a basic seed stitch pattern, ribbed edging, short rows to shape the cowl-neck and horizontal set-in pockets.

The garment is intended to be worn with positive ease at the chest for a comfy fit.

Uses 560 – 1020 yds of bulky weight yarn

theknittersdudeThe Knitter’s Dude by Andrea Rangel

From the pattern description
The Knitter’s Dude takes inspiration from the iconic Big Lebowski sweater, but it’s designed with the knitter’s enjoyment and inspiration in mind. It’s worked entirely in the round so that the stranded color work never has to be worked on the wrong side, and finishing doesn’t require any seaming.

Uses 1241 – 2311 of worsted weight yarn

anthroAnthro by Hanna Maciejewska

From the pattern description
“Anthro” is an elegant cardigan worked from the top down completely seamless. Its timeless design was inspired by the beauty of Anthropologie sweaters and features set-in sleeves with a cable detail, double-knit cuffs and hem in a contrasting color and a button band with rhythmic button sequence.

Uses 1070 – 1780 yds of fingering weight yarn

reesportReedsport by Marie Greene

From the pattern description
Reedsport is the sweater for long walks at the coast. The deep pockets are sized for hands, shells, and smooth stones. The extra-long length means a little layer of warmth on a breezy day, but with manageable sleeves which work beautifully over a variety of styles and layers. It’s the perfect seasonal crossover.

Uses 1025 – 2070 of worsted weight yarn

madamelibrarianMadame Librarian by Paige Reisenfeld

From the pattern description
“Madame Librarian” is knit from the top down in a slipped stitch plaid pattern. You cast on for the back and work to the underarm, then pick up stitches and work the fronts individually. Eventually you join the neckline, and once you reach the underarm, join the fronts and back to work in the round for the rest of the body. Sleeve stitches are picked up around the armhole and shaped using short rows.

Uses 751 – 1341 yds of DK weight yarn
